Why do we need a D4?

Nikon will almost certainly release a very nice pair of cameras in the "D4" and "D400" later next year

What is wrong with the D3s/x? What is all this talk about a D4? I'm just wondering what it is that people want that would require Nikon to come out with a D4, at least any time soon.

Sensors have been very good now for some time, and for some photographers the durability and features of the camera are more important.

The reason I bought the D300 is because of its high ISO performance. I will only upgrade if there are improvements in sensor performance, mainly high ISO performance.

The last great feature I can think of is their iTTL flash system, and that could use some improvement in reliability. I've had issues with using wireless on their SB-800s. I wonder if its improved on the SB-900, but too bad they cost so much. I'll probably never know. Maybe I should consider Quantum.
